A Dittmer man was seriously injured in a single-vehicle traffic accident Saturday evening (Jan. 11) on Hwy. 30 in the Robertsville area of Franklin County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that Jeffrey Oliver, 34, was driving a 1987 Chevrolet Silverado east on Hwy. 30 east of Hwy. HH at 9 p.m., but was driving too fast for the poor road conditions during the winter storm and his pickup went off the right side of the road and hit a utility pole.
Oliver sustained serious injuries and was taken by car to SSM Health St. Clare Hospital in Fenton, the report said.
An update on his condition was not available.
Oliver was not wearing a seat belt, the report said. The truck was totaled in the accident.
